Remi Arntzen commented on CODEC-36:
-----------------------------------

I created a patch for CODEC-8, which has yet to be completely resolved and agreed upon, that
includes support for the URL and filename safe alphabet.

> The default Base64 alphabet is not safe to use for URL query parameters since 
> the '+' character is converted to a ' ' (space) when the parameter value is 
> retrieved from the request (ServeltRequest.getParameter(String) 
> and .getParameterValues(String)).
> It is possible to post-process the result of Base64.encodeBase64 but I would 
> rather prefer to specify an alternate alphabet or call another method.
> Refer to http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3548.txt section 4 for more information.
